I did my first two days of Project FeederWatch on Monday and Tuesday and saw 15 species of birds with a total count of 29 birds. If you don't do Project FeederWatch you should seriously consider doing it. It's so relaxing to me.
PFW lasts from Nov. to April. It's so fun to watch the birds that spend their winter here in our area start coming in, and then watching the spring birds come in, too. Plus, you're helping out the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, too. Give it a whirl, buddies!
That photo above shows some of the suet I made for my birds last year. They LOVE it. It contains oatmeal, flour, sugar, peanut butter and cornmeal. If I could find the recipe I'd share it, but I'll have to search for it. :)
And whew, it's COLD out there. I love it.
